We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.
I'm interested in diachronic sources of incompletive aspect markers. If anyone is working on a language that has incompletive aspect markers and has an idea about the lexical sources of these markers, or if anyone knows of relevant literature (which I haven't been able to find very much of), please let me know.
Best regards, Anatol
